Question about Bosch WFK 2401

1 Answer

My washing machine was not spinning so I researched it and found that it was most likely the brushes. When I opened it up turns out the brushes were worn down to next to nothing, so I ordered new ones and replaced them, but when I went to turn on the washing machine it would not power on. My guess is that it is a fuse, but they are ceramic, so I couldn't tell if they blew or not. Is there an easy way to test the fuses, or another possibility of what could be wrong?

You can buy a cheap meter from maplins or screwfix for less than a fiver which you can use to test the fuse.
Check all internal wiring connections are true, test in a different socket. There is the possibilty that the motor failure may have blown the main pcb (263909) or the on/off switch (167321) is not operating.
Good luck.

Zanussi turbodry wdt 1075 washing machine fills & drains but does not perform wash cycles or spin cycles drum does not rotate


Quite probably the motor brushes. Disconnect from mains. Tilt machine backwards as far as possible. On motor, disconnect wires to brushes. With a multimeter, check continuity between brush and any segment if the commutator. If open circuit, replacing the brushes should do the trick. Also visually examine the commutator for damage

Machine does not spin,model no 3008 could you


modern washing macine motors don't have brushes they are what is called inductive not touching parts .
just doesnt spin ? or wont run at all ? hears a rule of thumb washing machine motors are very tough (usualy) unless a drum seal leaked causing corrosion or somthing mechcanical has gone (meaning you can't spin the motor with you finger ) then your problem is probably elsewhere ie...lid switch, cam control switch,... you get the idea
Good luck

Washing machines door open light is on, but door is shut


Found it for myself - F7=motor fault. New motor brushes fixed it. This error code will come up if the motor fails to turn on demand at any point in a program, be it filling, in a wash cycle, or spinning.

I had the same problem. My husband checked the carbon brushes attached to the motor and ran the machine on spin. The brushes were sparking so he assumed they were worn and replaced them and hey presto machine works fine now. The brushes cost 23.99 and were just bought from a local shop but can be bought online cheaper. Hope this helps solve your problem. Essex

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA54 very noisy during spin


Hi, if your H/P is noisy on the spin cycle, just open the door and turn the drum a few times. If you feel some play, or kind of loud huming noise, then it is the bearings, very, very common on H/P WMA's.

Hi, Does the drum turn during the wash cycle? When it comes to the spin cycle does it go through to the end without the drum turning? It sounds like it could be the motor needs new carbon brushes. Regards, Tom.
